"Where to from here?" - good question... ;)

Two possibilities are using Wine and (in about a year or so) ReactOS. Wine has made some great progress in the last couple of months or so. I've judged it harshly in the past, but it's now impressing even me.

ReactOS (which is using an increasing amount of Wine code) is really making huge progress too. It's still labelled as "alpha" but the latest releases feel very solid. It is aimed as being compatible with XP, so it could be an option in about a year or so. Until then, Wine might be worth a try.
